When you wish upon a star Makes no difference who you are Anything your heart desires Will come to you
I’ve made a couple of changes to the next few lines…
If your heart is in your dream No action is too extreme When you act upon your wish it can come true
Wishing on stars and relying on fairy godmothers is great if you live in a Disney movie, but if you don’t (And I imagine you fall into this category!) then all the wishes in the world aren’t going to make your dreams a reality.
Dreaming, wanting, and wishing are healthy habits. They help us stretch our imagination and envision new possibilities and outcomes. In order to create any kind of a new reality for ourselves, we first have to dream it. However, the power of wishes and dreams ends here.
Wishing is the first step on a long road to creating that new reality. The next steps require action. What needs to happen for that dream to come true? How many of those things are within your control? What are you going to do to achieve them? How will you track your progress?
Turning that wish into an action plan is incredibly empowering, and far more likely to yield results than simply wishing upon a star. If you’re having trouble envisioning that dream as reality, download a template map and get drawing. You can watch this video to guide you in the process.
Remember, YOU are your own fairy godmother. Action plans may not be as glamorous as a magic wand, but they can be just as powerful!
